The Miami Hurricanes currently have 19 commits in place for the 2015 recruiting class. Although the class already looks strong at the moment, there is room for improvement. The 'Canes are in the hunt for a few Under Armour All-Americans, that could instantly bolster this class to another level.

Here are a few recruits that Miami hopes to land a commitment from:

Gardina (Calif.) Junipero Serra 5-star LB John Houston: He took an official visit to Miami for the Florida State game. Although the 'Canes lost, the visit had a lasting impression on him. Miami is in need of linebackers, and he could definitely help fill the void that will be left by senior LB Denzel Perryman. He plans to announce on national signing day.

Washington (D.C.) Gonzaga 4-star DB Marcus Lewis: He decommitted from Florida back in July, and he lists the 'Canes as a potential landing spot. He plans to take an official visit to Miami Jan. 30.

Miami (Fla.) Central 4-star WR Da'Vante Phillips: The former Florida commit named Alabama, Auburn, Florida State, LSU and Miami as his top five. He plans to announce his intentions at the Under Armour game, but at the moment it seems he will be following his former teammate RB Dalvin Cook to Florida State.

Although there are not many players in this game considering Miami, landing any of these recruits would be huge.

The Under Armour All-America game is Friday, Jan. 2 at 4 p.m. It will be broadcasted on ESPN.
